ircha.org has a pilot proficiency program which has a good list of them. But there really is not a set order in learning different manuvers. Just when you learn one, like flips, try to expand on them, like doing a loop while flipping and so on. Also get good at flying in every orientation (like inverted, backwards inverted) that will help you alot with most of the manuvers as well. There really is no sequence to learning(if there is I am screwed).
Just my opinion. Good luck.
I would recommend trying autos they are too much fun. I just started doing them one day, and the next time I flew I started with inverted autos.

Dont think too much about it, just flip the switch and do like you do on the sim (assuming you got a sim that is ).
Dont pull the collective to max negative, somewhere around inv. hovr position will be fine - just let it float down!
Do them towards the wind, wind helps (not storm but... )

Good Luck Aaron

Hey Aaron,

for autos, practice powered approaches till you can land the heli right in front of you under power, this is important! Your approaches should be very scale-like, start up high and concentrate on bringing the heli in nice and slow with one straight shot while power is on.

If you find yourself flying the heli down like it's following a stairway, you need to keep working on the approach. If your approach is weak, you will be overworked mentally when trying to do an auto. Visualize a laser coming from the nose of your heli pointing down to the intended landing spot. I agree about autos being too much fun, very easy to get obsessed with them.


To answer you original question on the correct sequence to learn....

I can get extremely detailed about this and bore you but I will say that you should be extremely meticulous with the things you can already do. Better to have less maneuvers that you can do extremely well than performing many manuvers that are of poor quality and minimal control. In time you will learn more maneuvers.

If you find the heli dominating you during most of the flight, you need to re-evaluate the big picture and figure out what you need to work on. Don't ask how I know

Best of Luck!

I want to learn the movement of the sticks in 3D flying...

Thanks.-

Get an experienced flier to buddy cord you and show you how it's done. It will save you a lot of $$$s (parts and fuel) even if you have to pay the guy for his services. If you are proficient in flying out and can do steep airplane type approaches and are not disoriented when flying nose in or side view then autos will come very easy for you. It's just a matter of seeing the proper way demonstrated and explained to you and just copying it. Also, you will need to see where your starting point is for switching the hold switch so that you can make it to the landing spot and maintaining the proper attitude: never nose down but not too nose high either, then just timing the correct collective position.

Its harder to explain than to execute.

Here is something I retyped to help with the order the maneuvers are learned. It is based on the IRCHA Proficiency Program.

Hope it helps!

One thing I can offer is not to try and get the heli down too fast I.e. assuming you will regain rotor speed while flaring at the bottom. If the heli is falling too fast you will have no hang time or room for error at the bottom of the auto. I like to fly my auto's down as if I am just normally descending for landing (about -6/-7 works well). It's a delicate balance between headspeed and mass of the heli plumetting to earth. Don't get me wrong let it "fall" but try to fly it down like you are landing an airplane. I found these to be the easiest autos to do as you have full cyclic control the whole time during descent. I've seen alot of people just slam the stick down and just barely keep from hitting the ground this is wrong. Keep an eye on headspeed and you will know when it is getting low just lower the collective a bit more. The key is realizing if you slowed too much in an auto and to bail out when just learning don't jab the stick down to try and compensate for loss of rotor speed or you will crash.
